Oh, Hello There

Good Morning, Dear Friends.

I apologize for having gone MIA this last week. It became quite clear to me that not having the weekend to get my life together means the week to follow…well…let’s just say life = not together.

Scrambling to throw meals together on the fly, trying to catch up on chores that went undone over the weekend, looking at the lawn that was 2 weeks past needing mowed, all the while working my regular job that verges on insanity…you get the picture. How my obsessive, compulsive personality survived is still a mystery!

Time spent in Nebraska made the life = not together scenario well worth it as I shared time with my family. Check out this picture I snapped of this gorgeous flowering bush at my grandmother’s house!! It was so full of blooms that the branches drooped under the weight. Simply stunning!

I hope you enjoyed Mother’s Day, in whatever capacity you celebrated and that this past weekend left you rejuvenated and ready to tackle this week.

I’ll be back later with some fun blog posts, but wanted to drop in this morning to say hello and offer some encouragement that no matter what is on your plate this week: You Got This!!

We Did It! We Did It!

I hope this Monday morning finds you all coming off a wonderful weekend.

My weekend was wonderful, for several reasons:
1) I got to hang out with one of my favorite little dudes while his mommy worked – and we were VERY busy
Owen
2)My man and I spent a good portion of Saturday afternoon lounging around and relaxing….and napping…because I LOVE napping, always have.
3) A girlfriend and I enjoyed a very nice brunch on Sunday, followed by a refreshing hike through Red Rock Canyon
4) more napping Sunday afternoon…then I had to buck up and get my chores for the weekend done: sheets washed, bathroom cleaned, weekday breakfasts made, dinner on the table (well, couch, we don’t have a table right now because there isn’t room in the teeny tiny apartment. But, it sounds weird to say “Dinner on the couch”).

Another reason my weekend was wonderful is WE DID IT!!! Over the weekend my followers count hit 76!!!

As promised, a random drawing has occurred and we have a winner for the Santa ornament!

Here’s how it happened: I logged on first thing this morning to Random.Org and asked it to draw me a number between 1 and 76. The resulting number: 3. Then, I went back through my followers, based on date they signed up to follow. And the winner is……APieceOfLisa!!

A special thank you to each and every one of you who follow the blog, and give me a ‘like’ or a comment when you come across something that tickles your fancy. I love knowing you are out there. I love your feedback. I love your support. You are all the greatest!!

There are many more adventures coming soon – we are closing on a house in just under 2 short weeks and there will be projects (I got butterflies in my stomach just typing that!). Stay tuned…more adventures and more giveaways in the future!!
